750ss Build

Hi,

This is the first installment in this build... The pic is not the best quality but you guys can see that it is already a motorcycle .



I will try to get more done next weekend and will hopefully get some better pics.

Thanks for stopping in...

What brand of front forks are you using?

RU trying to get oil stains on your persian/pakistani carpet so that it will have more value as an antique? Oh yeah, nice SS so far! One of Ducati's better looking bikes, IMHO

Nice. I especially like that you like to work on it from the kitchen table. LOL

Gorgeous wheels and very cool on the front fork color. Did you get them painted?

Hi,

Thanks for all the nice comments

stoshmonster,
Those are Marzocchi RAC 43's (they were originally installed on a Bimota DB7)

Mad Dog,
The nicer carpet is under the table... I did not want to scratch my frame while assembling the bike

marlin917vs,
That is the dining room... I would have to push the bike up a flight of stairs to work on it infront of the kitchen table.

SJTrance,
The rims are carrozzeria and like the forks are annodized red... I love the color and after seeing them had to own them.

Thanks again,
Gray

Hi thib

I will take a while but eventually I will get it up and running.

I have managed to get a little more work done... I have installed radial mastercylinders (Brembo RCS(18/20) and Accossato 16x16). Calipers are P4's(new) stolen from an Aprilia . EFI rail is installed (is from a 750ssie and has a regulator) as well as a pair of quick disconnects(fuel line)... Waiting on parts at the moment. The exhaust I still have to fabricate, will be an undertail system. Shock is a Wilbers 640 with the ride hight turned all the way out (length is 335mm)

ok, here is a pic... sorry about the quality, it is really dark in this old house...



Thanks for stopping in

Gray

Hi,

Has been a while, progress is going slowly on this project. At the moment it is hard to find time to work on it...





If you guys have any questions just let me know... I orderd the body work yesterday. I will need to get the tank stripped and fit up the bodywork then I can start painting...

Thanks for stopping in...
